Review
Comissioned by the GPO, 'Night Mail' (1936) is a much-studied piece of British cinema, which, in true modernist fashion, fuses film, poetry and music together in order to convey the success of the British postal service. West Highland (1960) is a beautiful tribute to the heady days of the steam railway that had, by the time this film was made, gone into decline.
